Visceral Manipulation involves working with the connective tissue of the body that envelopes our viscera / organs (stomach, liver, digestive system etc). This has a direct effect on tension held in the body and movement. Releasing these restrictions encourages pain free movement of the whole body. This works especially well for chronic pain conditions. https://www.barralinstitute.com/therapies/
